Yeah it was really crazy and it was really good. It was very emotional for me.
RESPECT.: What exactly made it emotional?
More like I can’t believe it. This is my first project.
RESPECT.: So, take us behind the meaning of the project?
It is all about feeling trapped sometimes. it’s all about knowing that in the end you can be free and you’ll soon be out of the cocoon.

Actually, it can be relationship or relationship with yourself.

It is for my new song coming out called “Waiting.”
RESPECT.:What else do you have on the way and if you could wish on a star for 2019 what would you wish for?
Interviews, working, and looking forward to the next thing. My wish would be for more people to hear me because I have a story and a message that is so relatable. I don’t know, I think people will love it. I want to be inspirational and make people want to feel something.
